For those occasions when you want to feel more at home on vacation, staying at a bed-and-breakfast is a great alternative to traditional hotels. Not only are bed-and-breakfasts homey, but several are also dog friendly, which means you won’t have to leave your dog at home when you take your next trip.
If you’re ever planning a trip to the Empire State, check out these B & Bs that accommodate four-legged guests.
1. The Arnold House, Livingston Manor
When you aren’t taking advantage of the spa and lake house, run through the meadows and into the pond with your dog at the Arnold House, a 7-acre retreat in the western Catskills. It’s an extra $25 per night to have your dog, but the Arnold House makes it entirely worth it, providing your pup with a dog bed, food bowls, housemade treats and a parting gift upon checkout. BarkPost recently filmed a video at the Arnold House and can personally vouch for the friendliness of the staff and the dog-friendliness of the property!
2. Mill House Inn, East Hampton
The Hamptons is a great summer destination for both you and your dog to enjoy. With the help of Mill House Inn’s maps of local dog-friendly beaches and restaurants, you’ll never have to leave your dog behind — though if you do, they’ll be in good hands with the walkers and sitters on call at the Inn.
3. Audrey’s Farmhouse, Wallkill
Not only is Audrey’s Farmhouse dog-friendly, but the bed-and-breakfast in the Hudson Valley also has two resident dogs who can’t wait to meet your pet. Bring your dog to Audrey’s to enjoy the property’s 5 acres and the area’s surrounding outdoor activities.
4. The Glass Magnolia, Interlaken
Located between Ithaca and Geneva on the Finger Lakes Caygua Wine Trail, the Glass Magnolia Bed and Breakfast has two pet-friendly rooms to choose from. Outside of the hotel, outdoor wine tours are a great activity that both you and your dog can take pleasure in.
